Wow, this is still here.

Hey guys, long time no see. I expected this site to be dead but I see pretty much the same group of people here as when I left. Cool beans.

Is everyone here still doing Game Maker or have you all migrated to something else? I'm trying to move away from Game Maker but meh, it works and I can work with it. Although truth be told, I haven't made much in a long time, been busy with classes, failing with women and... Playing lots of video games. :D

I am kind of off-working on a game right now though. Remember Element? Probably not. One of the mods brought it back wit a fancy new engine so I have my fingers in that to keep it legit.

I'm also officially taking comp sci classes now. They're pretty cool. I like being required to use a computer to do my homework, makes it really convenient to google things.

So yeah, not much is new with me. Basically same-old same-old. I might post some stuff over the summer. Financial aid doesn't support summer classes so I have some time and will probably make some games. Good to visit the site again, congrats to the staff for not exploding the servers in my absence.

New College, New Computer

So I graduated this year, did I mention? Got an AA degree from my community college. Now I'm going to a university to study computer science. So far it's pretty cool. It's a smaller branch of a pretty big university, so I get a nice school for my resume without having massive 200+ student classes. I've only had two days of classes so far, but I'm liking it there. I'm taking Matrix Algebra, State Government, and Java. I haven't been in them quite long enough to say for sure, but I think I'm going to like all of them. And no, I didn't get to choose which programming language I wanted to take, so don't ask me why I chose Java. XD

Anyway, I may commute there, but I'm still there for 8-10 hours a day, so I decided to get a new laptop. This way I can get all of my work done there between classes... And game when I don't have homework... :D

Here's the beastly laptop I am posting this blog from right now: Asus G4SX-BBK7
It can run anything I throw at it, and it never gets warm. It's easily the best computer I've ever owned. I'm very pleased with it. You won't find a much better price than that on a laptop for the components, and its design is really spectacular. I had to shell out some extra money for a backpack big enough to store it, but it was well worth it. ^_^

Oh, and I'm working on a super secret awesome game with a few buddies. I'll share more details when I'm getting closer to being ready to release it, but here's a screenshot for now.

Anyhow, that's what's going on with me. Thanks for reading.
